    Do not get overwhelmed by the work load, it becomes more manageable over time. Sleep 7 to 8 hours a night, as you will have higher success with lower stress if you do. Invest in what interests you and don't feel bad if you're not interested in everything. Don't be discouraged if you don't find community right away; its a process and it will take time. Be who you want to be, whether that be the same or different from who you were in high school. Give yourself a break sometimes. Its ALL about BALANCE.

    If you're worried about expenses, don't worry! Baylor provides scholarships to over 90% of incoming students, which helps out a ton. Classes can be tough, especially if you're entering as a pre-med student. Take advantage of supplemental instruction and free academic tutoring offered across the campus! Make sure you get to know your hallmates! Baylor is incredibly intentional about making its residence halls feel like home, and a part of that is knowing who you're living with. Don't be a stranger! :)

    Be prepared to study and familiarize yourself with the campus before your first day. Think twice before bringing your car. I don't really use it.
